How to Make Friends During Your Trip
Hit the Hostel Bar
Hostel bars can be the ideal place to meet new people as the crowd will most likely comprise of travelers. Although people shouldn’t rely on alcohol to overcome their shyness, it definitely helps to build some confidence and strike up conversations.
Many of these bars have drinking game nights, where groups of people form teams to compete for silly prizes. They also tend to have pool tables and offer super cheap drinks, which creates a social atmosphere that encourages people to bond.
